Do you work on C-level positions as well?

Most of our clients are rather small in size, so there might be a C-level position to fill here and there. But if you are interested in what is usually understood by C-level position, i.e. with upper six-digits salaries or more: There are other agencies on the market you should consult here.

Yes, absolutely. We are a licensed provider of recruitment services and based in the EU, so there is no restriction on us in any means.
